That's what I was thinking, too.

I was just wondering if anyone went ahead with the install and had some feedback.

I've been on the Beta for the past month or so and I love it.

On my iPhone 7 Plus - I really like the new control panel and the battery life is excellent. The new app store is really nice, especially now that it is being updated.

On my iPad Pro 12.7" - Dock is amazing, multitasking amazing, side by side amazing... just all around fantastic.

Its a great update with some small tweaks and new features.

I updated shortly after it was released. Much better on my iPad Pro than it is on my iPhone 7+. Not that the iPhone version. Is bad, but the iPad version is more feature-rich.

One thing to note: the icons to disable Bluetooth and WiFi in the Control Panel work differently on iOS 11. They disconnect any devices, but do not actually turn the services off. This is by design (“a feature”) and not an accident.

Also, any 32bit apps you may have will stop working.

Anyway, no problems so far.

Thanks, I was wondering about that last night after I updated my 6+. SO far, no problems, but it is still early. Going to pla around with it more tonight.

Ah, thanks! So settings it is to turn them off to save power. Interesting but great to know.

I like the new keyboard so you can pull down the shift key alternates to swipe them per se instead of hitting the shift key. Better feel but this will take some getting used to as well as the keyboard looks a bit cluttered. I do like the idea though, just have to form some new habits.

Default Re: Apple iOS 11

I am hoping they change the WiFi and BluT functionality on the control panel, I took tend to kill those things to conserve battery life if I need to and it was very convenient there.

I had the missing Visual Voicemail thing happen but was able to fix it easily enough, only took trying 4 different things.

The "old man text" seems to affect more of the system now, things are VERY LARGE, oh if it were only that easy.

I haven't messed around with the new texting features yet. Did see you can mess around with screen shots you take on your device before saving them.

I like the "share password" for your home networks, if someone else is trying to connect to a network you are on (at home only?) you can hit a button and share the password with them, no more hunting for it and putting it in wrong 3 times.

There is also the "DND while driving feature" which is pretty cool.

I have been running it since the public beta 2 on my iphone 7 plus and ipad air 2. I love it so far. Especially the ipad because it’s much more like a macbook now.

There are reports of it breaking email connectivity with Exchange and Office 365, so for those of you that use those email services or support iPhones on the IT side, be aware.

Thanks for all the feedback, everyone.

Perhaps it’s my imagination but my phone battery isn’t lasting quite as long as pre iOS 11?

After the install you should go through your apps and update the location-services settings. I noticed the some of the settings needed to be adjusted.

Good call, need to check those settings again.

FB Messenger had a freak out on Friday night; it was just crashing all of the time whenever I tried to got on it to send out messages. Delete/reinstall didn't work the first three times, but I finally got it reinstalled the next day. Apple released the update last night.

So far I am liking iOS11, but I do need to upgrade my 6plus soon.
